Please don't misunderstand me. I don't run an "elite" shop. I see all kinds - from top professionals, through college trumpet majors, all the way to little Johnny in his first year. I try to help the parents over their fears, not the least that they will be ripped off by the repairer! We all hear "but the teacher said it just needs ......" It is little Johnny who is at most risk, either from a sub-standard instrument or other factors. He is the guy that I especially try to encourage.
